What would you do with an extra day?

What if we had an extra day each week? An extra day to spend with friends and family, an extra day to do nothing, or maybe an extra day to get out and explore Winnipeg. What would you do with an extra day? Right now, I could really go for an extra day. I feel as though school and work take all my time and I’m left with nothing. But really, what would I do with an extra day? I would cook a mean breakfast. I love cooking breakfast. Hash browns, bacon, fried eggs, and toast with some freshly brewed […]

3 Reasons Why Lists Need to Just Stop!

The internet is a funny place. It seems the only thing hotter than a picture of a cat or a strip of bacon is a list about cats or about bacon. Lists have left actual books and articles in the dust, and with websites such as Buzzfeed and Listverse trying to capitalize on the internet generation’s peanut-sized attention span, it’s no wonder that my Facebook feed is flooded on a daily basis with stupid lists that I don’t care about, but still read. So here it is. My list. 3 REASONS WHY LISTS NEED TO JUST STOP 1. THESE LISTS ARE […]

The Mighty Mug

So imagine this, you have lots of homework to do s you decide to go to your favourite coffee shop. You order your favourite drink, and go to sit down. You pull out your binder, textbooks and pencils to get ready for an intense studying session. Nothing could go wrong, right? WRONG! This is a disaster waiting to happen. I am a coffee robot, I run on the stuff. I couldn’t live with out it. I cannot tell you how many times I have been working on something important with my coffee tumbler beside me and I knock it over.

Funimations!

Everyone that knows me at the campus knows that I love soccer. There is a particular team that I follow more than any other. Arsenal. To kill some time today, I hit up the good old YouTube to search for some fan made Arsenal videos. The results did not disappoint. Luiz Suarez Bite That awesome clip goes through Luis Suarez’s biting career. It starts with his time when he played for Ajax all the way to the recent World Cup in Brazil where he bit Giorgio Chiellini. He got banned from playing soccer for awhile after that. He probably needed […]

The Exchange – Episode 1

The Exchange is an hour-long story telling program where people share experiences. Some are funny, some are sad and some are just plain strange! In this episode we look at things we can never do again; sometimes it’s a song we can’t listen to because of a bad breakup or a beach we can’t swim at because of a lost suit……whatever the story, we all have one.

Western Man’s Most Stunning Achievement

By Mike Cuma – Morning Hike   After months of spending money at actual coffee places it turns out that there’s a place in Winnipeg that just gives it away! A giant place – one with blue walls, friendly staff, and ample parking. Yes we went to Ikea, like the 1000’s of people before us and after us we couldn’t stay away. It was as if the giant square warehouse called out to us like a Swedish beacon of hope – plus they have free coffee before 10. Simply Irresistible. I wanted the authentic experience so I arrived at 9:00, […]

ChickFlicks tackles online film distribution

ChickFlicks is a radio show about movies. It’s not about new releases and box office results like our show In Focus, though. ChickFlicks, hosted by myself (Jenna Marie) and Chaley Lynn, focuses on different aspects of filmmaking. There will be guests and conversation around topics like lighting, special effects, and more. For last week’s show we talked about online distribution and release of films. We had Reid Valmestad as our guest and we discussed the pros and cons of online distribution. The biggest fact of online distribution is how easy it is to put a film online. The Internet has […]

KY58 Aircheck

A little radio history for you here. This is an aircheck from KY58, an extremely popular AM radio station in Winnipeg in the 1980’s. An aircheck is a recorded portion of an on air broadcast that the station manager would review with the on air personalities. In this broadcast you’ll hear radio legends Charles Adler and the late Ron Able. You’ll also hear current CBC broadcast meteorologist John Sauder. Known as “Captain John” back then, Sauder used to perform traffic reports while flying his own plane! The year is around 1987/88, which becomes apparent when you hear Charles Adler’s newscast. […]
